Coleman Middle School Newsletter, 10/22
Important Message From Dr. Mozley
I am writing you to inform you that I was appointed Executive Director of Human Resources for Gwinnett County Public Schools at last night’s school board meeting. I am honored by Dr. Watts' recommendation and the school board’s appointment; however, I will most definitely miss leading and supporting the teachers, students, and parents of the Coleman Middle School Community.
Over the last five years we have accomplished many great things as we have executed our mission statement of “providing students with rigorous and innovative learning opportunities using Project/Problem Based Learning (PBL) which promote collaboration, critical thinking, community, and creativity.” We have, together, built a very special place for all our students to thrive and succeed. Our successes would not have been possible without the support of our amazing parents and community! Our faculty and staff members come to school each day committed to engaging every student to prepare them with future generation skills---this important work will continue! Coleman Middle will continue to prosper and excel under new leadership due the community of teachers, staff, and parents that fully support the mission and vision of the school.
In the coming days I will communicate additional details on the selection and appointment process for your new principal; my transition date has yet to be determined. Do know that all teachers, staff, parents, and community members will be invited to complete a survey to indicate desired qualities in Coleman’s next leader. Your opinions and perspectives are valued.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Updates from PTA!
CMS SPIRITWEAR SALE on INSTAGRAM this Monday!

FALL FUNDRAISER UPDATE
Thank you to all of the parents, grandparents, students, teachers, and staff that donated to our Fall Fundraiser this year. We were able to raise a total of $4220 that will be used to install water bottle fillers at some water fountain stations around the building. Stay tuned to our social channels during the year for updates on when those installations are made. We can't wait to share them with you!
UPCOMING PTA EVENTS - ART WEEK! The first week of December will be PTA's ART Week for our students. You will be hearing all the details about this starting in November through email, Coleman Connection, Instagram and Facebook.
Opportunity for Giving!
Dear Coleman Family,
We are so fortunate to be a part of the Gwinnett County and Duluth community. It is our mission to make a difference in the lives of our students, families, and city. As we begin the season of giving, we would love to illuminate the pathway of kindness by partnering with Rainbow Village. Rainbow Village is a nonprofit organization in Duluth whose mission is “to transform the lives of families experiencing homelessness by providing help, hope, housing, and healing.” One way we can help is by purchasing everyday household items that our families need. Please consider donating items off the Rainbow Village Amazon Wish List. If you do purchase an item, in the comment box, please type the word “SHINE” to show your support for our community. “Our schools SHINE when we help our community SHINE!” We appreciate your generosity!

Attention 6th grade parents!

The law requires that a current certificate be submitted to school verifying that the student has received both of these vaccines before they enter 7th grade.
Please check with your health care provider if your student’s immunization certificate is up to date.
